We were not previously aware of our legal obligations to operational road risk. We mainly used subcontractors so we incorrectly assumed that we did not have any legal obligation. Once we began to work with Astute Fleet we have looked at our fleet management in a different light, not only are we starting to make financial savings but our operational systems have improved as well. I can heartily recommend the system to anyone.
John Boardman - MD, All In Property Services
We have found the AFIS system to be a great tool to help us manage our company cars and vans. We have been rapidly expanding so knowing that the vehicles have been looked after from purchase to disposal has been a great help. We have also been using the additional services within the software so it has been like we had our own fleet department.
Kevin O’Toole - MD, West Lancashire Electrical Contractors Limited
The first vehicle management system designed specifically for small and medium businesses. Whilst recognising the importance of health and safety AFIS presents it in a simple and efficient manner that requires minimal input for maximum effect. From the experience gained in over 30 years of fleet management, AFIS has been created with practical guides and tools to help you operate a more cost effective, compliant and efficient fleet. By embracing the recommendations within the AFIS system any vehicle operator, even from just a couple of vehicles can make significant reductions on their running costs.
Case Study One
Compnay 1 did not implement any electronic licence checking for their employees and one employee was caught speeding whist out on a delivery. Upon sending the notice back with the driver details completed they were informed that the driver was actual disqualified from driving. When the driver appealed it was noted that the incorrect address on his driving licence meant that the fines had gone to an old address and not been forwarded on. Under “totting up” regulations six penalty points had been applied twice and therefore unknowingly the driver was banned.
AFIS has built in tools to help you manage anniversaries of MOT's Insurance and Road tax. Links to industry leading telematics companies. Monitor journeys for speeding and heavy breaking, start times, end times and reckless driving.
It is always our aim to provide the best value system on the market, at a fraction of the required time or financial input.

We have seen the industry change and develop so we are well placed to advise you on all aspects of vehicle supply including leasing and contract hire. It's why people use Astute Motoring time and again.
